Apply for Admission

Are you ready for a degree or certificate in Knowledge Management or Creative Leadership?  The Bachelor of Professional Studies degree is a 120 credit degree program that consists of a liberal studies core, professional competencies, major-specific requirements and electives. The Bachelor of Professional Studies certificate is a 15 credit program (5 classes) that can be used as a standalone credential or folded into the BPS degree program. Both programs can be completed online or on campus.

Admission applications are reviewed on a continuing basis, so there is no application deadline for part-time undergraduates. Admission is based on a combination of factors that include having graduated from high school or the equivalent, standardized test scores, transcripts from all previous undergraduate work, personal statement, and if requested, letters of recommendation. An admission interview with a UC advisor is required and is available in-person, by phone, or online. Admission to the certificate programs requires an associate’s degree or equivalent.  If you plan to work toward an undergraduate degree part-time begin the application process.
